I’m always looking for additional indicators that will help me adjust my temp basal needs accurately and timely for my changing insulin sensitivity. (I use Humalog in my pods.)
I’m currently watching how long it takes my boluses to start working (prebolusing for meals or just correction boluses in general) as an indicator of how well my basal rate is matched to my insulin needs. It seems that if my boluses start working in 10 minutes or less, my basal is too high for the scenario. If my boluses start working in 10 - 20 minutes, my basal is probably well matched. If my boluses take much longer than 20 minutes to work, I’m probably not using enough basal for my current insulin sensitivity or activity levels.
